Brass Band Podcast discovers the Acrobat Challenge!

Friday 7 April, 2017

Dave and Kenny speak with Jayne Murrill, the inspiration behind the Acrobat Challenge, the viral sensation supporting Stephen's Journey. Jayne reveals the background for the idea and discusses her rising career as a conductor. We look at the success of female conductor's versus their male counterparts and look at the factors behind why there aren't more ladies taking up the baton.

Also in this episode we ask why banding isn't more multi-cultured and hear from Brass for Africa's Kaleema Frank and Alex Parker on the impact brass playing is making in Uganda to the lives of so many.
